In The Christmas Mood

in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


I am not good at waiting

If it were up to me I would be celebrating Christmas already.
I would go buy my Christmas tree right now, I would make it pretty, I would turn on the Christmas lights, I would listen Christmas songs and I would wait for Santa to come.
…With presents, lots of presents 😀
Maybe I’m more in a “presents” mood than a Christmas one, now that I think about it.

Well, I could do the first things on this list with no problem at all, but I didn’t find a way to convince Santa to pay me a visit sooner – maybe he knows that I haven’t been really good this year and he doesn’t fell like making me any favors.

Still, I have my way of celebrating on my own. Who needs Santa to feel the holiday joy, right?
So I searched for Christmas songs (modern as well as classic) and I am listening to them all over and over again. For instance I am enjoying a lot this playlist. (to bad not all the songs are embedded to be listened right over there)

Maybe I don’t have the Christmas tree ready at home, but at least I have one on the blog (note that the holiday background is available only in December)- and its Christmas lights are on (and dancing ‘at night’) – and I am enjoying my little piece of holiday right now.

Now, what about you?
Did you send your letter to Santa? Are you ready for some celebration? What Christmas songs you love the most? What Christmas books are you planning to read?

Some favorite songs:

Nevershoutnever – 30 Days

Train – Shake Up Christmas

Faith Hill – Where Are You Christmas

    WOW! I love the new holiday header! How do you do that? I love the dancing lights. I’m glad you are enjoying the season. I always do too. 🙂

      I am really glad you like it. To be honest I don’t know much about what’s ‘behind it’, I’ve only made the design and the developers were kind enough to listen to my ideas and make them come true 🙂
      And yes, I am enjoying the season here. We’ve got a lot of snow yesterday and already it’s starting to feel like Christmas.

    I personally don’t celebrate Christmas but I love when it comes around! (besides getting 2 weeks off of school) I love the spirit of it! All the decorations and lights, the winter, and everybody (well the majority of people) in a good mood. It’s nice.

    Also, I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the new design!! I’m obsessed with it is more like it! The ruen off/on lights thing, is so damn cool, I never seen anything like it. and the little books with your links rock. Your web rocks in general<3

    -thank you&come again.

      Oh, I love the Christmas tree and all the decorations and carols, and I really want some snow this Christmas (a lot of snow). I liked it all even more when I was young and I spent the holidays at home and my mother made lots of cookies ;)) I think more about Santa when I say Christmas, and less about the christian believes, so I’m not really sure what I’m really celebrating those days, LOL.

      And thanks again. I love love love the design as well and I am so happy when I see other people loving it as well. As I said before, this is my playground and I am having lots of fun with it ;))

        Usually it doesn’t snow where I live, but our weather has been colder then the northern states so I got my fingers crossed that we get snow this year:D it’s magical isn’t? If it’s December year round, I wouldn’t mind! and I understand, a lot of people celebrate less for religion beliefs and more for ‘holidays’ ((: I hope they’re merry for you:D

        It’s really one of my favorites! It”s super cool without being overwhelming. haha well even I’m having fun with it:p

          When I was a kid it used to snow every single Christmas. The last years not so much (or at all). But I hope that now that I moved near the mountains to get my wish come true and have a lot of snow on Christmas Eve. For me it’s not really Christmas without it. And as a kid I thought that Santa won’t come if it doesn’t snow, LOL.

    New to your blog and now following you! Gotta say I love all of your layouts and awesome graphics/artwork! Amazing blog! Love it!

    I am a big fan of Christmas music. Barenaked Ladies has a great Christmas cd, so does She and Him. I’ve been reading tons of Christmas books right now too.

    Happy weekend!

      I’ll check your music recommendations, thanks a lot.
      As for the Christmas books, I didn’t read much.. the last one was Ex-mas by Kate Brian which was quite cute ;)) Do you have some book recommendations to make? I’m trying to find something nice for holidays.

      Thanks for following, I hope you’ll enjoy the blog 😉
